Abstract

Governments use fiscal policy to encourage healthy behavior. Fiscal policies for health are taxes and subsidies on certain foods, and tax incentives for health care purchases. Little exists in the literature linking fiscal policy and health promotion except in relation to tobacco. The objectives of this study is to examine country experiences of fiscal policy for health promotion and usefulness of these policies and to present suggestions for further research and policy directions.
This study is divided into the following sections:
- From the economic perspective, we present the approaches that health promotion could be regarded as an important factor for economic growth, and estimate socioeconomic cost of illness.
- We provide the justifications for sin taxes and a framework considered fiscal interventions for health promotion by policy rationale.
- We examine the experiences in developed countries of using fiscal policies, which is focusing on the taxes on good such as alcohol, tobacco, and gambling. (The rest omitted)
